Abstract

The Blake Society and Pedagogy Outside the Academy

This article explores what Blakean pedagogy can be through an examination of the United Kingdom’s Blake Society, a non-academic organization. The Blake Society works to promote greater recognition of William Blake’s life and activities but eschews the goals of scholarly knowledge production that often accompany academic Blake activities. Through an exploration of the Blake Society’s pedagogy, this article asks what resources and authority are necessary to do things with Blake.
